Archie Willams High SchoolMountain Bike Team
Welcome to the online home of the AWMTB Falcons Team
8X California State Champs, 2009 - 2012, 2015-2018 and 10X NorCal High School Mountain Bike League Champs (2004, 2006, 2009 through 2017)
Hey Team! (Yes you) Welcome to Pre Season!
We are currently in the pre season from now until mid December. During that time, we are limited to 6 group events and we minimize the training rides and focus on fun. The season starts after the winter break and we'll begin Sunday training rides (9 AM Deer Park). Once we get more light in March we'll begin twice weekly training rides after school (~4:15 Deer Park).
Races begin in late February and go through April/May
There are four races and one championship, which riders have to qualify for to participate. As far as time commitments, we expect riders to make at least two rides a week when we're doing three. In the early part of the season it's best to make all the Sunday rides to be properly prepared for racing by end of February.

Is My rider good enough to join the AWMTB Bike Team?
The bike team welcomes all folks who love to ride and looks forward to teaching riders to race.
How are riders assessed?
At the beginning of each season the team does a time trial ride up Loma Alta in Fairfax. This allows the coaches to assign riders to groups based on their riding ability. Those groups will then ride together for the season.
Can a rider move up in a group? Yes, with coach permission.
Can a rider ride with a group they are not in? Yes, with coach permission.
If I miss the time trial, how do I know what group I am in?
It is strongly recommended that if you are a new rider, you attend the time trial. If this is not possible you should speak to your coaches for assessment and placement.
What are the groups?
Pink – Highest level of performance and endurance
Blue – High level of performance, high endurance
Green – Moderate level of performance and endurance
Purple – Beginner level of performance, moderate endurance.
If you still have questions about our system please do not hesitate to ask a coach.
